FAQ:

Q: How do you make homemade summer sausage?

A: How to Make Homemade Summer Sausage. Add water and liquid smoke to ground beef and mix. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Form into two rolls and wrap in foil. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Poke holes in foil with fork and place rolls on rack or broiler pan and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Meat may appear to be red after baking.

Q: What is a good recipe for summer sausage?

A: Stir the water, curing mixture, mustard seed, garlic powder, black pepper, and liquid smoke in a large bowl until the curing mixture has dissolved. Preheat an oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Bake in the preheated oven until the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees F (75 degrees C), 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Q: How long and what temp do you smoke summer sausage?

A: Raise temperature of smoker to between 120 and 130°F, add smoke chips (I like apple wood), and smoke for 3 to 4 hours. Raise temperature to 170°, and smoke until internal temperature reaches 165°. As sausages finish up, prepare bucket of ice water in which to immerse summer sausages.

Q: How is summer sausage cooked?

A: Summer sausage is usually cooked in a meat smoker although it can be made in a conventional oven. You would lose the smokie flavor in oven cooking unless you added liquid or powdered smoke flavor to your mix.
